After learning the very sad news of Levon Helm’s passing yesterday I have been looking at Elliott Landy’s fantastic photographs of The Band. He photographed them extensively during 1968-69, at work while recording Music From Big Pink and “The Brown Album” and at play, hanging out in New York state.
Here are some of my favourites
Bearsville, Woodstock, NY, 1968
Outside Rick Danko’s Zena home, posing with his Hudson, Woodstock, NY, 1969
In the kitchen of “Big Pink”, Easter Sunday, West Saugerties, NY, 1968
In the basement of Rick Danko’s Zena Road home, Woodstock, 1969
Richard & Garth’s house above the Ashokan resevoir, infrared film, Woodstock, 1969

I was lucky enough to meet Elliott Landy at an exhibition in London in 2003 and he kindly signed my copy of Woodstock Dream
Now go and watch this!
